Top Three Things to Communicate

Our Target Audience:

Our targeted audiences are businesses that import and export any kind of goods anywhere around the world. Key terms I would use are: “International trade, importers - exporters world vide, logistics management. For example we have shipped anything from cars, machinery parts, medical supplies, over sized goods, personal effects and raw materials. Basically anything our customers want us to ship. We ship 85% by sea and 15% by air.

Key International Group is a freight forwarding company. It is like a travel agent for goods. For example: Our customer needs to ship 40 foot container from Las Vegas to Prague and we figure out how to transport those goods safely, fast and cost effectively for them.

Key International Group is based in Long Beach, California. The Long Beach & Los Angeles Port combined is the largest and busiest shipping port in the US.

The company values are: customer focused, fast and cost effective. Please check out our mission statement on our website: http://keyinternationalshipping.com/ which is being completely re-designed and we will be posting our new logo on our new website, marketing materials, etc. We are a small growing, dynamic company with an international team from Asia, South America, Caribbean, US, and Europe.

Dear Designers,

Thank you for submitting your designs. We would like to see "KEY" in LARGE capital letters as indicated in #2 and #3 but please stick to the green, blue and yellow colors. Also, we like the idea of the earth/globe in our logo.

Thanks and look forward to your new designs.

Best,
Key International Shipping

We were hoping for a more complex logo. Maybe blue background, blue globe. For example, check out the middle of this webpage where you will see a globe. We were hoping to have a similar globe incorporated into our logo: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Investing/MutualFunds/why-gas-prices-will-soar-again.aspx?OCID=eml_msnnl_6004.14.2.15&REFCD=emmsnnl_6004.14.2.15_5

Let us know if you have questions or suggestions.

Thanks!

Please move the globe, so we can see Brazil. If someone has a great image of a "key - symbol" like key to the door and has a great ideas to incorporate it into the logo please feel free. It is not a requirement at all.

Thanks,

We decided that we want to have the globe on the right and the company name "KEINTERNATIONAL SHIPPING" on the right as it is in #101, #23, #52.

The writing in the logo has to be big enough so people can read it easily. We asked #23 & 52 to make the writing bigger.

Please keep submitting your designs as we have not make a decision yet.

Thanks!
